I almost went with the ZL1 grille but I'm trying not to stray too far from the SLP ZL appearance. Plus it's ow GM had originally had the grille for the ZL1 concept.

Thanks John, I agree my friend. I'm a fan of traditional SLP get-up even though I'm pretty far from that now. I was trying to get the SS heritage badge setup on the new grille, but just didn't look right.

I've got some adjustments coming down range come spring...

Well Luke, if everything pans out, I'll only be a few hours north of you again, so I look forward to a cruise down to VA

Although I do like the heritage grill with the ZL1 facia, but then our cars will be just too damn alike.. Wait, besides black and orange what's different in our cars? ;-)

Yeah currently the calipers are brembo red. If I do the paint job overhaul I would probably go paint match on the calipers.

Thanks for the feedback. The Brembo Red is definitely their branding and suits it. There needs to be some color separation. I need to look for some pics of the IOM on IOm.

Yeah I agree on color separation with the red calipers. I think IOM calipers would have been too much IOM. Red is a nice touch and gives some pop
